…and local birds might need a bit help.
When it’s cold outside birds need food which is rich in calories and high-quality to survive the coldness. Herbal fat from nuts and seeds is the optimal food for the birds’ musculature. Grain-eating birds like chaffinch, brambling, greenfinch, hawfinch, house sparrow, tree sparrow and siskin like sunflower seeds, minced hazelnuts and walnuts, beechnuts and infructescence of millet and poppy.
Don’t feed wheat, rye, barley or oat because most of the birds don’t eat these or can’t digest them, and when this food remains in the bird feeder, it can start to mildew and harm the birds.
Blackbird, song thrush and redbreast like dried elder berries or rowan berries, rose hip and small pieces of apple and pear. Don’t worry, even frozen fruits don’t harm the birds, they naturally peck frozen berries without getting harmed.
Some birds eat peanuts, too, so you can also feed them with peanuts. But don’t feed the birds with bread!
Clean the feeding ground regularly, so that the birds don’t fall ill.
You can also start to hang up birdhouses, so that the young birds can look for a nesting site they can use in spring.
